VERY morning mercies new
2 Still the greatness of Thy love
Fall as fresh as morning dew;
Daily doth our sins remove;

That these gifts may never fail;

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
3 Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,
4 Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth and sky and sea;

NOW, when the dusky shades of night, retreating
Before the sun's red banner, swiftly flee;
O Lord, we lift our thankful hearts to Thee.

Thou, in whose name the lonely ones rejoice,
Still let us listen for Thy warning voice.
And shades of evil from its splendors flee,
